Netflix won’t be renewing Cowboy Bebop for season two, according to Deadline. The development comes less than a month after the live-action adaptation of the iconic anime hit the streaming service.

Cowboy Bebop is a story of bounty hunters who operate as a group, led by Spike Spiegel (played by John Cho), to bring in or take out the galaxy’s most wanted criminals. Other cast members include Mustafa Shakir as Spike’s trusted co-pilot Jet Black and Daniella Pineda as the highly-skilled bounty hunter Faye Valentine.

The live-action anime adaptation premiered on Netflix Nov. 19. Shinichirō Watanabe, who directed the cult classic anime, worked as a consultant on the Netflix instalment whereas Yoko Kanno (the composer for the anime) provided the score.

Cowboy Bebop experienced multiple delays during production. One such delay happened because the lead actor (Cho) was injured on set. Filming resumed after a period of almost nine months.

André Nemec served as executive producer and showrunner. Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio also served as executive producers on the series.
